This program encourages requests with components that foster community wellness, directly impact populations impacted by substance abuse. Projects must serve Bethel City residents.


Bethel City Council has certain statutory and fiscal limitations on the aggregate amount of municipal funds it can set aside for donations to community projects. The amount of grant awards available to disseminate on behalf of all the applicants is dictated by the amount which is set aside by the City Council during the annual budget preparation process. The Council has committed to budget an amount equal to 20% of the revenue generated from the alcohol tax to health, public safety, and social service programs that help offset the effects of alcohol in the community.

The amounts contributed shall be accounted for in the Community Action Grant Fund, a special revenue fund. Annual distributions to grantees from the Community Action Grant Fund cannot exceed the available resources of the Fund or other limits established by City Council.
